Synopsis

I'm Holly. I wear pencil skirts, heels, and never have a hair out of place. Well, that was until I met Tristan Holt. Now, my hair is always a freakin' wreck, whether it's due to being on the back of his motorcycle, or because he's pullin it. He's a dominant one. Either way, he's changed me, helped me to step outside of my comfort zone.
He's also a player, bad boy type who runs his own MMA gym on the outskirts of Tryon. His very own fight club, if you will. I wonder if there are rules there like in the movie. It's probably not that cool.
The man infuriates me, sets my blood to boil. I let him worm his way into my thoughts and my heart like a stupid, stupid little girl. Even worse? I can tell he is falling for me. That is, until he finds out about my secret.
Now, in my defense, I didn't even know it was as bad as it is until all of the horrifying pieces are put together.
My father continues to ruin my life one effing blow after another from the comfort of his very own jail cell. Oh yeah, I didn't tell you that he murdered a woman, did I? Well, watch how that blows up in my face.


***Warning*** This book is intended for adults 18 years and older. Descriptive sexual content and language.***

Review

Holly Madison sempre ficou com o pé atrás no que toca aos homens, com o pai preso por ter fugido de um acidente que resultou na morte de uma mulher quando ela era pequena, Holly cresceu apenas com a figura materna.

Tristian quando a mãe morreu num acidente de carro em que ele também ia, não conseguiu ultrapassar essa fase da sua vida a forma que ele arranjou foi entrar no mundo das drogas e a vida de playboy. Para melhorar a sua vida, Tristian abriu um ginásio com aulas de kickboxing, e é onde ele e Holly sentem a atração entre os dois pela primeira vez.

Holly tem a sua vida bem planeada, não procura uma relação pois não consegue confiar nos homens para que isso seja possível. Tristian não quer ninguém porque é um playboy e assentar na vida para ele parece uma miragem.

Uma noite sem querer transforma-se em duas e uma noite Holly decide surpreendê-lo e dá de caras com Tristian e Giggles em actos mais impróprios para os olhos inocentes. Destroçada e sempre a pensar nele, digamos que ele não a deixa esquecê-lo com mensagens de texto e chamadas que Holly deixa ir para o voice mail, o pensamento é sempre Tristian Tristian Tristian.

Holly Madison já sofreu ao longo da sua vida, mostra-se ser forte, com a cabeça no lugar e objetivos definidos e pronta a cumpri-los, por vezes apesar de ter problemas de confiança mostra que por vezes é bom não pensar e atirarmo-nos de cabeça e seguir o que o coração nos manda.

Tristian Holt por Holly vai tentar ser um homem melhor.

A história não começa com normalmente é hábito, as personagens já se conheciam no inicio deste livro, é uma leitura rápida e cativante, é fácil apaixonarmo-nos pelo Tristian e a sua personagem é a que tem uma mudança mais evidente ao longo do livro. É uma boa continuação do livro anterior Emma Chase e sem duvida que aos poucos vamos ficando curiosos com as outras personagens e querendo saber mais sobre elas.

 

Holly Madison has something that pulls her back when it comes to man, with her dad being arrested for leaving an car accident that resulted in the death of a woman when Holly was little, Holly grew only with the mother figure.
Tristian's mother died in a car accident, he never overcame that moment in his life and that is when he enters in a world of drugs and becames a playboy. To improve his life, Tristian opened a gym with kickboxing classes, and it's where he and Holly feel the attraction between the two.
Holly has her life well-planned, not looking for a relationship because she can't trust men. Tristian doesn't want anybody because of his playboy life and to be in a relationship is like a mirage to him.
One night turns into two and one night Holly decides to surprise him and she is the one to get a surprise when she catches Tristian and Giggles in improper acts for innocent eyes. Shattered and always thinking of him, well she can't really forget him since he doesn't stop sending her text messages and leaving voice mail after voice mail, her thougths is just Tristian Tristian Tristian.

Holly Madison has suffered throughout her life, she is a strong independent woman, with her head in place and ready to set goals and stick to them, sometimes despite having trust issues Holly shows that sometimes it's best not to think and dive in with your heart.
Tristian will try to be a better man thanks to Holly.
The story doesn't begin as its normal, the characters already knew each other at the beginning of the book, is a quick and engaging read, it is easy to fall in love with Tristian and his character is the one that has a more obvious change throughout the book. It is a good continuation of the previous book Emma Chase, it's undoubtedly that gradually we become curious about the other characters and wanting to know more about them.

 

Excerpt

Before I knew it, I found myself pinned to the wall holding my breath, covering my mouth so that I didn’t scream at the top of my lungs.
Asshole.
The leggy blonde who I will now refer to as Giggles, because she giggled incessantly was well…giggling. Tristan was moaning. How the hell could he go from me last night to that in there tonight?
I heard the sound of a zipper followed by a male hiss and a female giggle/gasp. I thought I was going to be sick. My eyes roamed the hall leading to the office taking in the clothing that was discarded throughout. Then her lacy bra went sailing through the air in what seemed to be slow motion, like in one of those Bruce Willis action flicks, landing poetically at my feet.
My mouth watered and I could feel the bile slowly trudging up my throat. I needed to get the hell out of there and fast.
I squeezed my eyes and covered my ears when she giggled.
Again.
It was time to make my escape. I tilted my head back, opened my eyes looking to the heavens for guidance and thought, “God are you there? It’s me, Holly.” Nothing. “No?” Of course not.
“Leave your message after the beep” was more like the response I was used to.
I skirted by the office unnoticed only to be captured by Giggles’ lacy bra that had tangled itself firmly around my ankle and held on for dear life. I lifted my leg doing a one legged hop trying to shake it off but the damn thing wouldn’t give up. It had me in a death grip. I reached down, grabbed the bra, peeled it from my ankle and slung it behind me as I ran out the back door.
